This review is from: Cable Matters Gold Plated DisplayPort to VGA Cable 2 Metres (Personal Computers)
Within my work, I use programs that require rather different graphics card to what gamers and most people will need. Many of these graphics cards in modern forms will generally only have two options: DisplayPort, and DVI-DL. When it comes to monitors for these two, you're either going to have to buy an adaptor cable for a usual monitor, or just buy a monitor which can take either.
As a result of my monitor breaking, I felt I should buy a cable to adapt my VGA monitor to my graphics card for a minimum of downtime. As a result, I bought this cable.
I'm thankful I did because it doesn't degrade the image at all, compared to many other cables which can drop the signal at the slightest radio interferance or other problem with the signal - it holds its own quite well. The VGA portion of the cable is quite large as noted, which can be a pain, but it isn't an eyesore as it is just worthy of consideration.
While I have no doubt some will look elsewhere for the perfect cable, this is still very good and worthy of consideration. Your work won't suffer if you can deal with what may be a slight loss of image quality, but at this price I can't complain at all.
